In the ongoing match between India and Sri Lanka, skipper Hardik Pandya made an unusual appearance with the ball for the first over and his decision looked to make a good return until Samson missed the catch in the end.
The thriller dive by Sanju Samson was unfortunately a poor choice as he could have advanced for a few steps to make it an easy one.
What actually happened – Samson dives across and appears to catch the ball on a leading edge that pops to his right at mid-off, but it pops out as he hits the ground
Commentators along with fans questioned whether it was necessary to dive for the ball or he could have advanced by taking a few steps –
#SanjuSamson is the most overrated player with one of the most toxic fanbase with 0 performance…

First didn’t score and now dropped the easiest catch. Sanju deserves at least 50 matches. #SanjuSamson

During the first innings Sanju Samson was caught by Madushanka while attempting a leg-side hoick off a delivery from Dhananjaya. This marks another disappointment for Samson, who had made an error in an earlier over and did not learn from it. He is known for attacking offspinners and targeting the mid-wicket pocket, but he made a mistake twice in this match. He walked back with his head down.
Crickbuzz is brutal
Indeed the last moment jump was as unnecessary
as going for the hit despite being dropped one ball ago#SanjuSamson #INDvsSL #DeepakHooda #IshanKishan #RishabhPant https://t.co/AzExr05pOT
